How it all started
Covenant Christian Ministries/Church was founded based on a vision for ministry by Pastor Frederick T. Anderson. While pastoring a Baptist church in north Georgia, Pastor Anderson saw a greater picture of what the local church was capable of doing for Christ. Through diligent prayer and searching of the scriptures, Pastor Anderson was led to the scripture in Isaiah 42:6 - 7:
“I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light to the Gentiles; to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”
Through obedience, Pastor Anderson named this church Covenant Christian Ministries/Church - a people called together for a common purpose for God, in legal contract through the blood of Jesus to win the world for Christ.
The ministry began on October 13, 1991, in Bradley Eppinger’s funeral home with a commitment of twenty (20) people (the pastor’s wife, son, sisters, brothers, and other faithful friends). After worshipping in the funeral home, the ministry held services at several hotels for about a year until we leased property on 528 N. Marietta Parkway (thirty-five members at this time).
We leased this church facility until October, 1993, and then mortgaged that property, and a few others which have since been removed. In November 2011, a faulty furnace caused the 528 N. Marietta Parkway location to be ravaged by fire causing the destruction and removal of the church facility. Between 1998 and 2001, the church purchased twelve additional properties to allow for expansion of the ministry. These purchases include 170 Fairground St., where we worshipped until February of 2016.
Expanding the vision
The church is steadily growing, and we are now in transition. We currently offer one weekly service which is held at Smitha Middle School (view update). This is our temporary home as we prepare to expand the ministry and vision God gave Pastor Anderson so many years ago.
As we perfect the saints to walk in a covenant relationship with God, all will know that there is ministry in Marietta!!! God remains faithful and continues to show Himself strong in the life of Pastor Anderson and Covenant Christian Ministries. We stand in awe as we watch the vision become a reality.
Where we are headed...
As we continue to plan and believe God for our building, our goal is to reach the world. In 2020, our pastor's heart is to spread the gospel far and wide to reach one million people through ministry, outreach, and social media.
